Insta360 launched today Insta360 ONE X2, a pocket-sized camera offering unbreakable stabilization, 5.7K 360-degree video, IPX8 waterproofing, a 360 touch display, and a range of AI-powered editing features.
The form factor of the Insta360 ONE X is retained with some notable upgrades under the hood. Instead of a black and white OLED display, the ONE X2 features a full-color display that can be used to both compose your shots and navigate through the camera’s settings, and finally, a 1630mAh battery has increased shooting time up to 80 minutes. The camera weighs 149g (5.25oz) and its dimensions are 4.62 x 11.30 x 2.98cm (1.82 x 4.45 x 1.17″). Without any case, the ONE X2 is rated at IPX8 which means it can be taken underwater down to 10m (33ft). With the dive case, the camera can function as deep as 45m below the water surface.
The ONE X2 features four shooting modes: 360, Steady Cam, InstaPano, and MultiView.
Four microphones promise to record clear, stereo audio with a new smart wind-reduction algorithm. You can also record ambisonic audio for a more immersive experience.
In 360 mode, the camera will capture and stitch together a 5.7K 360-degree video. Steady Cam makes it possible to compose your shot — from the whole 360-degree view — and capture digitally-stabilized video that’s ready to share off the bat. InstaPano is a feature that takes advantage of the 360-degree camera and can build panoramic images from a single photo rather than needing to stitch multiple images together. Panoramic images are 4320 x 1440 pixels in resolution and can be exported in jpeg or RAW DNG. Lastly, MultiView allows you to capture two angles at once, enabling you to capture both the scene in front of you as well as yourself in two separate videos.
Powering the image stabilization in both the 360 and Steady Cam shooting modes is Insta360’s updated FlowState technology, which is now ‘better than ever’ with improved stabilization performance.
Also new is Deep Track, a new algorithm-powered feature that makes it easy to track subjects with a voice command or tap of the screen. Once the video is offloaded into the Insta360 app or Insta360 Studio, the program will automatically adjust the video to track humans, animals, and other moving objects, keeping them in the center of the frame.
The ONE X2 can act as a webcam and it can also live stream in 360-degrees directly to Facebook, Youtube, or any other 360-degrees channel with the customized RTMP feature.
The Insta360 ONE X2 is available to order today through Insta360’s online shop and authorized retailers for $430.
